Abstract

Poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA)/chitosan interpenetrating polymer networks (IPN) were prepared by UV irradiation. The water sorption behavior of the IPNs was measured at various temperatures and humidity levels. The water uptake of IPN13 is greater than that of other IPNs. Vapor sorption behavior is more affected by the density of water vapor than by hydrophilic properties with increasing temperature. Equilibrium water uptake increases as humidity increases, and the increase is more noticeable at high humidity. The sorption system of all IPNs is a relaxation-controlled mechanism at a relative humidity (RH) of 90%, but it is a Fickian diffusion-controlled mechanism when the RH is below 50%. With an increase in humidity, the diffusion coefficients were found to increase due to greater penetration of water into the IPNs.
